This activity is a "Lab" series lesson activity designed to supplement and enhance student learning after teacher instruction.
In this "Lab" students work in pairs. One student will serve as the “author” and the other student will serve as the “solver”. It is the solver’s responsibility to verbally explain how to solve the problem to the author. It is the author’s responsibility to write the solver’s explanation. The “author” and “solver” will switch roles after each problem.
While this "Lab" can supplement any teacher instruction based on this topic, this "Lab" was developed to supplement the Eureka math module 1 lesson 6 for Algebra.
